Motors.co.uk has created a mobile-first version of its AutoEdit platform called AutoEdit GO.
The platform has been built to enable dealers to manage stock between mobile and tablet devices as well as desktop.
Phill Jones, managing director of Motors.co.uk, said: “Our day-to-day conversations with dealers reveals how important the smart phone has becoming to running their business.
"This new platform unlocks further functionality so that they can easily manage their stock from any location and any device. This investment is a further sign of our passion to deliver smart tools that will help dealers.
“We understand that dealers would like a simple and fast way to upload new stock, and thanks to AutoEdit GO, we have streamlined this process.
“Now dealers can take photographs on their latest vehicles and register them to their listings faster than ever before, saving them time and money. We will continue to collaborate with our dealers to make sure we develop solutions that help improve their efficiency.”
Licence plate recognition
As part of the update, functionality has been added to recognise a car licence plate from a photograph and automatically checks the vehicle’s history when it is added to a dealer’s listings.
This free upgrade for current Motors.co.uk AutoEdit customers has been designed to save dealers time so they can upload both photographs and key vehicle information either on their forecourt or in the office.
The latest technology is applied to the photo editing tool within AutoEdit GO, which allows users to quickly crop and rotate images they have uploaded.
AutoEdit GO customers will always receive the latest software and application updates free of charge.
AutoEdit GO customers that have a CAP licence with Motors.co.uk will also benefit from its library images and the ability to enhance vehicle descriptions with pre-populated information.
